More Information About Advertising on Saucon Source
Saucon Source content received more than 1.1 million pageviews in 2022. Our coverage area in east central Pennsylvania includes–but isn’t exclusively limited to–these areas:
Saucon Source LLC was founded in 2014 as an independently-owned digital media company for the purpose of publishing SauconSource.com. Since then, the website has grown out of publisher Josh Popichak’s passion for producing top-quality community news into a platform that is an integral source of information in the Saucon Valley.
As a locally-owned small business, revenue is crucial to our survival, and local advertising sales are our biggest source of revenue. Advertiser dollars fund the news that is available to all. As an advertiser, your ad will not be hidden behind a paywall. We believe in open news platforms, which is also why we work tirelessly to ensure that every advertiser is satisifed with the results from their campaign, as the testimonial below highlights.
Josh and Saucon Source have been an invaluable resource. Their partnership has helped to grow our small business and serve the local community. -Pins N’Needles

How does advertising on Saucon Source work?
Saucon Source offers two zones for display advertisers–the title zone and the regular zone–and dozens of types of ads through our hosting provider Broadstreet ads.
The title zone is the most prominent ad zone on SauconSource.com, with ads appearing above our masthead. Up to five campaigns may run in rotation in this zone at one time.
Our regular zone offers visibility with flexibility. Square or rectangular ads in this zone display more text and graphics. These ads appear on the right side of the homepage on desktops and laptops. On mobile devices they appear in between homepage stories. On all devices they rotate to appear above and below content on individual article pages.
Choose from a variety of ad types–including video, photo gallery, Instant Instagram and more–available from our ad server, Broadstreet Ads. Click here to see more examples.
How many people will my ad reach?
Your ad’s reach will vary according to several factors, one of which is the length of your campaign. We are able to track the number of impressions and clicks each ad receives via our server. This information is available upon request in the form of a campaign report.
What do I receive with my ad?
Free ad design with Canva is included, but you can also design your own ad if you prefer. Just ask us for the specs and we’ll work with you to make sure your ad looks fantastic.
Your ad is typically linked to a website, such as your business’s website or social media page. Included with most ads is a complimentary post about your business on the Saucon Source Facebook page. Your ad will also appear in the Saucon Source newsletter.
Nonprofit, church & local government advertising
Saucon Source understands that registered nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations, churches and local governmental agencies often have limited advertising budgets, which is why we provide a 50 percent discount on all display advertising to these select clients.
